29rooms; the interactive playground for adults. This pop up museum would be held at The Reef in downtown Los Angeles from December 5th - 9th. With intent to be a groundbreaking art experience, 29rooms was literally a exhibit with 29 rooms based off different themes by different artist.
AMERICA TOO is the third collaboration this year by Murakami & Abloh; with previous shows “Future History” being in London & “Technicolor 2” in Paris it was only a matter of time before the duo brought a show to USA. The two have a natural chemistry that seems to work well whenever they decide to collaborate on a project. This is not limited to just art, but fashion as well…with Virgil Abloh being the Creative Director of Louis Vuitton, it is likely for them to work together under the high fashion brand seeing as how Takashi Murakami started a relationship with Louis when he designed this bag in 2003. But for now we can appreciate the work they do have out, Gagosian in Beverly Hills was host of “AMERICA TOO” which was on display from October 10th thru the 25th.

The time capsule exhibition by Louis Vuitton covers a selection of hand picked items from the House's archives, with some dating back to the late 1800s. This exhibition really shows how innovative and complex Louis Vuitton really is; a brand started in 1821 that still has relevance and is at the top of the game is really inspiring. Supplying a platform to walk you through the timeline of landmark moments really allows you to appreciate the elegance in motion. With the appointment of Virgil Abloh as Men's Artistic Designer, it is likely for the brand to keep producing new ingenious creations. The LV time capsule is open from 05.18.2018 - 06.10.2018 and is free of charge located at the Westfield Century City in Los Angeles, CA.
